The Euros went from casual watching to must see television in the blink of an eye. Span and Croatia gave us a game for the ages with 8 goals shared between the two.

Euro 2020 has snuck up on us, even though it's a year late so we decided to fumble around and try to fill out a predictor bracket without any preparation. We think we did a great job so you should definitely listen us. We argue over the dark horse, the top scorer and if this England team can overcome its history of failure and deliver success. For once, we might actually agree on the winner. As always, we hope you enjoy, and if you do please share, review and subscribe. See acast.com/privacy for privacy and opt-out information.
Tuchel reaches the promised land by being competent, in stark contrast to Pep Guardiola. Should Kante or Lewandowski win the Ballon D'or? Unai is inevitable as Villlareal outlast a hapless Man United to win the Europa League. We also hand out Premier League awards. Yes we discuss the best player, best goal etc but who has the most punchable face, the best and worst hairstyles and which team has the best kit. It's all here on another sensational coshcast.

Aguero signs off his time as a City and premier league legend with a brilliant final day brace. Arsenal finish top 4...this calendar year while Leicester bottle their top 4 hopes. Chelsea and Liverpool find themselves in the champions league further justifying the Super League (SIKE). Nuno signs off losing to United's academy team (haha). On the continent. Juve UNDESERVEDLY make into the Champions league spots...without Ronaldo. Lille show that good can triumph over evil by winning Ligue 1 over PSG and Atleti prevent a huge bottle job by winning La Liga and tears flow all over the plains in Spain. See acast.com/privacy for privacy and opt-out information.
Not Mane, not Salah (though he scored earlier), not Firmino, not Jota and most definitely not Thiago. It was Allison who saved the day for Liverpool and put top 4 in mersey hands. Brendan Rodgers reaches the promised land (in England at least) by winning the FA Cup over Tommy Tuchel's Kepa flapping Chelsea. Premier League champions Man City enjoy a wild Torres fueled win over a resurgent Newcastle and Everton return to mediocrity is confirmed by defeat to Sheffield United reserves. Elsewhere La Liga went back and forth like a see saw with Suarez saving Atleti's title push. Lille couldn't close out Ligue 1 and have one more chance to put PSG and Poch in the mud. Serie A had some serious Calciopolli vibes as Juve squeaked out a vital win over Inter while Milan faltered and are now in jeopardy. It's all happening on an action packed Coshcast!

City's title celebration was put on hold as Sergio Aguero's awkward panenka and the state of English officiating give Chelsea victory in the champions league final dress rehearsal. United come back...again to win away from home...again with a Bruno Fernandes penalty to boot...again. Willian scores a goal, yes you read that right. Will Liverpool sneak into the top 4 at Leicester's expense? Can Pirlo the sommelier drag Juventus into the top 4 (what a question)? We show Atalanta some love as well. VIVA Lille! (Is this a thing?).

Manchester City ease and we mean ease, their way to another Carabao cup final against Ryan Mason's (yes Ryan Mason) Tottenham leaving Son in tears...again. It's squeaky bum time in the premier league as the top 4 race is almost too close too call. Speaking of too close to call, the title race in La Liga is unpredictable as four teams can win it, who will win it and why Sevilla? Serie A is wrapped but the top 4 race there is also electric. We predict the Champions League and Europa League semi-finals and of course we talk about the Premier League Hall of Fame! See acast.com/privacy for privacy and opt-out information.
Emergency pod alert! It's the biggest day in football for years. The Super League is dead! Chelsea fans protest and the blues withdraw. The Sky blues followed suit leading the reds of Manchester, London and Liverpool to follow suit. Tottenham who begrudgingly wave the lily white flag as well.

Nothing else matters. Not that Man United beat Burnley, not that Leicester and Chelsea are going to the FA Cup Final, not that Atleti won to stay in control of La Liga, not that Juve may not make the top 4. Not even Jose getting sacked matters. Why? Because of the freakin Super League! The evil Super League! The anti competition Super League. We fume, we laugh and we definitely complain a lot on this episode of the Coshcast. Enjoy (but it doesn't matter). See acast.com/privacy for privacy and opt-out information.
A good father must feed their children. Well Spurs played like a hungry child abused by their parent. The parent in this case being Ole's Man United who spanked spurs 3-1. Leeds pull off the ultimate catenaccio performance against Man City winning 2-1 and finally beating a good side. Liverpool win at home...finally!

Of the annoying old British managers, who would you want to manage your club? Is Salah flattering to deceive? Is there such a thing as a bad 4-0 win under Pep Guardiola?

After losing at home to Burnley, Gooner fans are asking: "How do you solve a problem like Arteta?" How do Man United regroup from Champions League elimination? Maybe with a boring draw with a hesitant Man City. We have good words for David Moyes and Ralph Hassenhutl and a fiery debate over the hype machine behind Marcel Bielsa. For all this and more, check out this week's episode of the Coshcast! See acast.com/privacy for privacy and opt-out information.
Jose’s spurs set the most obvious trap that Arteta’s Gunners are powerless to avoid. Bruno’s presence rescues United while VAR leaves Moyes and fans of 19 other clubs annoyed. Liverpool don’t need Thiago to beat Wolves, they’ve got Curtis Jones, Vardy wins it for Leicester and tries to show Nigerians he’s one of their own.

Edinson Cavani leads United to victory over Southamption while donning a black kit, then makes an inappropriate statement referencing black kids. The Coshcast pays tribute to one of the greatest of all time Diego Maradona and we also pay tribute to the man with the greatest nickname of all time Papa Bouba Diop. For the record, the nickname is 'The Wardrobe'. We round up the rest of the action in the Premier League with Bernie having ANOTHER laugh at Arsenal fans' expense and the lads take a stand against Thomas Muller. It's all here in another action packed episode of the Coshcast. Whose ready for some argy bargy? See acast.com/privacy for privacy and opt-out information.
Many of us thought Jose Mourinho was finished. Is he proving us wrong after beating City? Liverpool prove that it doesn't matter who plays, they'll still beat you. Bruno Penandes gives Varchester United a just about deserved win while Arsenal deserve to lose to Leeds but get away with a point. The pod also makes a trip to the rest Italy and Spain touching on Gazidis, Emery, Mkhitaryan (poor Arsenal), Zlatan, Messi and the golden boy award. It's all kicking off here on the coshcast!

As the title says, the two best teams tried to bore us to death. United get a win against a good (we think) premier league team. Arsenal get a customary team at home against a bad (not this season) premier league team. Chelsea seem to be evolving into a competent defensive unit leaving Solksjaer and Arteta in the mud. Old man Roy shows you can teach an old dog new tricks, while Leicester still win despite Vardy missing missing a penalty kick. Speaking of penalty kicks, Under The Cosh formally disowns Ademola Lookman. Listen up! See acast.com/privacy for privacy and opt-out information.
After a solid professional performance from the Gunners, the Theatre of dreams officially loses its title.

After an explosive opening few weeks of the premier league season, the past weekend's action was a lot more pedestrian. Chelsea and United bored us to death. Arsenal and Leicester threatened to do the same before Vardy spoiled the Partey. We round up the rest of the premier league action before ending with El Clasico or maybe we should call it the artist formerly known as El Clasico. As always, we move!

This may have been the wildest premier league weekend we've ever seen, but is that a good thing? Liverpool are denied a last minute merseyside derby win by VAR. Spurs bottle a lead because it's who they are. Bruno Fernandes misses a penalty but Man United shock the world with 3 open play stunners, Man City bored us to death in their win over the gunners. Chelsea are taking this three sponsorship way to close to the heart, while Aston Villa win again to continue their blistering start. It's all in here, let's go!
